3 years ago Dave Newman & Richard Wells took it upon themselves to do something for a fellow cricket team member who was diagnosed with 2 x brain tumours (which he fully recovered from) we challenged the World Longest Cricket Net, aiming to beat 25 hours of continuous batting and to raise as much money as possible for Brain Tumour Research (we raised over £16k), we also smashed the old record and became official NEW World record holders of 48hrs.

3 years on we have come together again to challenge the CURRENT record, which stands at 52 hours, but this time there will be 3 of us
attempting it as A TEAM (Dave Newman, Richard Wells, Shaun Brown) and raising funds for a very important local charity Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance. 

We are aiming for a colossal 72 hours, but anything over 52 hour will break the current World Record.

The challenge starts:

9am Thursday 23rd November 2017 and will end 3pm Sunday 26th November 2017.  


Northgate Sports Hall

Mill Field Terrace



NG34 7AD

Our challenge:

We will be lining up in 3 individual cricket nets next to each other and facing a mixture of bowling machines and members of the public. Every
1 hour completed of continuous batting we are entitled to a 5min break. Our aim to start is bat for 12 hours straight to accumulate 1 hour in our break bank, we will then build on this by batting for 2/3 hours straight building the break bank up 10/15mins at a time.

The whole event will be recorded for GWR evidence and streamed live on social media. All this will be done by www.cricketworld.com local papers, radio station, TV will be on site to support.


We do, however need many people to help out during this event, anyone can get involved, time keepers, ball clickers, machine operators or just to boost our energy levels.

We would like to thank Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance for giving us this opportunity to help raise funds for your charity, you are vital to this
county and we are extremely grateful.

WE AIM TO RAISE £15'000+
